After the meet and greet  with  German Chef Frank Schmitt at the nearby Genting Star Cruises Academy , We were offered a quick but meaningful tour around the complex. Although this is not my first time to visit the complex, I have been watching some movies and theater plays in the past. This is more of a facility tour around the vicinity. Along with Pinoy Chocophile : http://pinoychocophile.blogspot.com , We were given an exclusive tour of the facilities , amenities and places to dine .

The hotel is said to open to the public in 2009 boast of being the first six star hotel in country. Aside from Marriot Hotel which is a six- star hotel , First in Metro Manila,   Maxims Hotel a six-star hotel, Remington Hotel a three- star hotel which is located within the complex.

wine  from different parts of the world  that is kept in refrigeration 

 According to our host , The wines  are kept away from sunlight and heat exposure, storing  them in  wine fridge which is  temperature controlled . Wide fluctuation in temperature will damage the wine and the cork. Ideal range of temperature for storing red wine is 50-55ºF or 10-16ºC. White wines can be stored at lower ranges at 45ºF.

wine stored in different levels

Another important factor is the humidity, which factors  important fine balance. If the humidity is too high, mold can grow and cellar woods and wine labels can be damaged. If the environment is too dry, the cork will crack and air will leak into the bottle, again ruining the wine. Ideal humidity for wine storage ranges from 60-75% Relative Humidity. Since i am not a wine connoisseur , i was stuck and awed by the wide array of wines from different parts of the globe.

The hotel main escalator had potted-live flowering plants which also serves as a flower arrangement , the potted plants can remain fresh for several weeks ! I even overheard some guests were asking whether those plants are real .

Marriott Hotel Manila is also the ultimate destination for meetings and events, from weddings to gala dinner celebrations., in-room safe, mini-bar, high-speed Internet, air conditioning, 40″ full high definition LCDs with IPTV, videos on demand and jack pack plug-and-play system. The hotel features excellent dining options such as Marriott Cafe, Cru Steakhouse, Java+ and Lobby Lounge.

array of chocolates and snack items

Among the hotel long list of celebrity clientele included Congressman Manny Pacquiao and among others. Maxims Hotel is also a perfect place to relax offering six- star amenities , while Remington hotel offers a 3 -star amenities .  Our  tour within the Newport City is not fully complete due to time constraints ,  We promise our contacts to return back and maybe feature some historical tid-bits and attractions that Megaworld , Genting and their partners are up to in the next few months to follow.  It is also wise to become a member of Resort’s World , They have exclusive membership cards which is like a reward plus, aside from getting points when you use the cards in any of Newport City establishments , There are also several pick-up points around Metro Manila where shuttle vans waits for those members . I guess with all those amenities and membership perks , no wonder ‘why’ this entertainment city can rival some of Asia’s best   and brightest cities !
